Description and impact

In June 2018, Wu Yuanxi and Wu Yuangang donated $52.9 million to Lufeng City for the construction of two local schools. One of the schools, which opened in September, dates back to a Chinese classics academy from the 18th century. Yuanxi previously helped build seven other schools in the city, and in 2008 established the Wu Yuanxi Charity Foundation, which has supported over 1,000 poor students pursuing college education.
